Pizza Dough Baking Demo Session

A few weeks back I was hired by Deligateaux Sdn Bhd to film their baking demo session in their factory featuring Chef Iqwan, a professional baker who currently works at Sky City Hotel in Auckland, New Zealand.

Hope you enjoyed the video.

Panasonic Lumix GH5 180 FPS | Gebeng, Pahang

This video will not be possible if I wasn’t one of KL Gangster Underworld’s casts. The story began when I got a call from Aslam Yusoff from Zana Entertainment. He asked, “would you be interested to be featured in KLGU?” Obviously I said yes. Then long story short, Gebeng was the last location of shooting for KLGU. I spent 3 nights in Kuantan (the hotel we stayed was in Kuantan) and they only called for my scenes on the last day so what did I do to kill my time 2 days earlier? That’s right, I made a video. Luckily, I came prepared because I sort of predicted that it was going to be delayed here and there so those camera gears were always in my car boot.

Also, I just bought a Panasonic Lumix GH5 so it was the perfect time to test out this bad boy. Super stoked with the video quality at 180fps. This camera is a real G.

Hope you enjoyed the video.

Pulau Rawa, Mersing, Johor

First and foremost, what an amazing trip. Probably one of the most beautiful islands I have ever been. At least within Malaysia. Fortunately the weather forecast was inaccurate when it said it would be raining on Sunday but it wasn’t! Sunny all the way till we all burnt our skin.

Drove from KL via North South Highway south bound at 3.30 in the morning. Exited Ayer Hitam and continued to Mersing via Kluang. It was a smooth journey but the road was very dark at night and jalan dia macam jalan balik Kelantan dulu dulu (for those yang tahu lah). From Ayer Hitam, it took me 1 hour 45 minutes to get to Mersing Jetty. Overall the journey took 3 and a half hours from KL to Mersing Jetty. I have to start driving at 3.30 in the morning because I wanted to catch the earliest boat to Pulau Rawa, 9.00am. So basically sampai tu mesti lah nak solat Subuh dulu, parking kereta (RM 18 per night) then breakfast. Just nice lah nak pergi toilet ke, freshen up ke. Tak kalut. Unless you plan to stay a night in Mersing then even better tak payah nak rush.

Boat from jetty to Pulau Rawa took 30 minutes. I think the service was superb. Makanan pun best giler. Suitable for all tak kira tua muda, single or family dengan anak anak. I also think the resort is probably a little bit more expensive than other islands because it is a private island. So, sesape yang nak kan ketenangan, melayan jiwa karat yang lara, aku hidup dalam blues, sangat sesuai. Kalau tengok water slides dia memang tak nak kalah. Best nak mampos. Aku naik more than 20 times sampai sakit badan. Tip dia kena bukak baju baru licin naik slide!

Sekian!

Pantai Cahaya Bulan (PCB)

Hari ini dalam sejarah. Buat pertama kali nya aku dan famili pergi ke PCB tapi tak makan colek! Wei biar betik? Memang betik sebab we had late lunch and went straight to the beach so masih terasa kenyang bila ke sana.

Medina was really looking forward to play at the beach. I bought her a kite but she only played it for about 10 minutes then she got bored. Sand was more fun. Emma on the other hand had no clue where she was but man she had no fear! Most of the time she likes to follow whatever her kakak is doing but this time around she went extra miles. Emma went into the water and dunked her head twice! Punya lah terkejut beruk aku terus angkat dia letak tepi. Tak serik dia masuk lagi dalam air rendam diri sendiri. Kelakar pun ada. Aku dah la dengan kamera lagi, phone lagi.. memang kalut. So tak sempat nak rekod moments masa Emma tenggelamkan kepala dan her whole body dalam air. Betul betul berani budak ni. But I’m glad they all had fun. Dekat KL memang tak dapek lah nak main pasir macam ni. That’s why everytime balik KB I will try my best to make a trip to PCB. Sekejap pun jadi lah.

Hari ni 1 May hari pekerja jadi aku expect visitors extra ramai tapi masa we all sampai surprisingly it was not that busy. By “not that busy” I mean, within 5 minutes dah dapat park kereta. Kalau tak, mimpi lah nak park dekat dekat. To those of you yang nak pergi PCB, I suggest you go awal sikit say 4.30pm or 5pm macam tu sebab masih belum pack so tak sesak sangat masa sampai tu. If it’s a sunny day, time tu the best sebab matahari tengah panas terik so bagi aku best lah kalau nak ambil gambar hehe. Unless korang tak suka panas then too bad lah haha. Biasanya local akan mula keluar jam 6pm ish sebab masa tu cuaca dah redup dan tak panas sangat. Sedaplah nak lepak lepak.

The Wedding of Christine & Kuan Eng

To be honest, I am still deciding whether to keep this site as a blog or switch it into a portfolio website. This URL is on my new business card now. I’m thinking to maintain it as a blog and if I have to, I will put a link to connect to my other platforms. It is already there on the left side anyway. What do you reckon?

I have been neglecting my blog updates for good two years and here I am again. It is very confusing when you run a business (or businesses) alone or in other words, one man show. Sometimes my tasks require me to do three different things at a time (learning how to split myself into three different bodies LOL) hence, let go some of the stuff I used to do. The solution to my challenges now is to take interns into my company. That would (hopefully) save me several hours a week from doing something I shouldn’t be doing.

By the way, I forgot how great it was to do editing on my 27″ iMac because nowadays I spend most of the time on my MacBook Pro. To the extend where I think I don’t need an iMac anymore but no I was wrong! Doing editing is without a doubt the best on a bigger screen. Here, I present you Christine and Kuan Eng’s wedding. Such an amazing and super nice couple. The wedding took place at InterContinental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Beautiful and intimate dinner reception. I wish them both all the best and stay fabulous!

Mitsui Outlet Park, Sepang

First of all, it has been 2 freakin’ years. Second of all, Emma’s first appearance on daddy’s blog, yay! I think I wanna blog again. Pretty serious about it but consistency is my concern. Pray for me!

So, last Saturday Maisarah and I decided to pay Mitsui Outlet Park, Sepang a visit and see it for ourselves. For me, it was a good first impression. I told Maisarah it felt a little bit like overseas standard. Maisarah replied, “Mungkin sebab banyak brand mahal-mahal kot sebab tu you rasa macam tu.” LOL. Because the building is huge, it automatically makes it sort of kids friendly place. Why? Because your kids can run about. Cons? You have to run and chase them haha. On a serious note though, please be careful because there are lots of people. If you tengah mabuk shopping, memang lupa bebudak ni semua unless you have someone to entertain them while you’re shopping.

I didn’t shop that day. Couldn’t shop with kids around. Nanti you tend to make rush decision and end up buying something you don’t even need but you buy it because you’re in a rush. Make sense? On the other hand, Maisarah thinks Mitsui is not a “fun” place to shop in terms of pricing. She thinks takde la murah sangat and it is just like a big mall with big sale. Not like an outlet. An outlet should offer crazy price. Even JPO (Johor Premium Outlet) is cheaper. At Mitsui, the cheapest shirt you can get is RM 29 but JPO ada yang from RM 5. Mungkin ade yang murah we all tak jumpa. Next trip we go without kids ahaks.

All in all, not too bad la. I wish I took more photos tapi nak handle camera lagi, budak-budak lagi, itu ini, memang ribut! Sesape yang ade anak tau lah macam mane ahaks. But again, kalau asyik bagi alasan jer, sampai bila pun takde gambar kan? A for effort!

Bapak ah dah pukul 4 pagi wei. Aku nak tido! Bye!
